Applies to establishments engaged in the operation and maintenance of a shake and/or shingle mill. Work contemplated by this classification includes receiving raw logs which they cut and split into shakes, shingles and ridge caps. A shake is a roofing or siding material having at least one surface with a natural grain textured split surface. A shingle is a roofing or siding material having sawn faces and backs and of a standard thickness at the butt end and tapered finish at the other end. A ridge cap is produced from two pieces nailed together to form a "v" shape placed on the center line of a roof. Raw logs are temporarily stored in the yard. This classification may include operations such as, but not limited to:
• Loading raw logs onto a conveyor or log slip;
• Cutting the log into rounds;
• Splitting the rounds into blocks;
• Feeding the blocks through a shake or shingle saw;
• Grading, sorting, bundling, and stacking finished shakes, shingles and/or ridge caps.
Machinery and equipment includes, but is not limited to, log loaders, conveyors, log slips, overhead splitters, cut-off saws, shake saws, shingle saws, taper saws, head saws, pallet presses, and forklifts.
This classification excludes:
• Establishments engaged exclusively in the manufacturing of ridge caps or shims which are to be reported separately in classification 2903;
• All operations conducted in the woods, such as logging or the cutting and splitting of shake or shingle bolts, which are to be reported separately in the applicable logging classification;
• Automated shake and shingle mills which are to be reported separately in classification 1002 provided the entire process to produce shakes and shingles uses automated processes at the mill site, and meets the requirements defined in WAC 296-17A-1002.
